I had always planned to include the Dog Lover on the Naughty or Nice List, but a recent incident made me bump this segment up. My friend Mallory, and her lovely pup Minnie, had a scare this week and Minnie needed emergency surgery. She is doing much better now, but a scare like this can really rock a person to the core. Having a sick puppy is an emotional roller coaster. You cannot understand what they need, but you can see their physical pain and combined with your pain, the overwhelming sense of worry is difficult to handle. Mallory is the best mom in the world to Minnie, and I love that I have a friend who understands how much we love our dogs. If you have a dog, take a moment RIGHT NOW (or when you get home) to give them an extra hug or kiss (even if that means you come home to a pile of chewed up socks).

I am obsessed with this toy! The "mustache" is attached to a durable rubber ball that your pup will look hilarious playing with (get the camera ready). It is a great combination when a dog's toy is equally as entertaining to their human. Cute and comical always works! $12.95, Humanga Stache Dog Toy

Tuffy toys are the most durable in the business. Ranging in shapes, characters, and sizes, they are built to last even the most destructive of dogs. My Barley Bear is a chewer, to the extreme, and these are the only toys that survive a few days in our house. Every Dog Lover would appreciate one of these (ranging from $12-25): Tuffy Toys
